Mint and windowpane





Sunnies: Gucci | Earrings: Stella and Dot | Necklaces: Express (option, option)  | Top: Kate Spade (option, option, option) | Bracelet: Natasha Couture (option) | Pants: American Eagle  (optionoption) | Oxfords: Sam Edelman (in silver cheaper here)

This outfit reminds me of a more casual, laid back version of my mint and chevron outfit from many moons ago. Similar in concept - black + white + mint + gold  geometric pattern + fun shoes. I'm actually surprised with how much I still love mint. I thought it was going to be a phase for me, but so far, it has stuck and I don't see myself giving it up anytime soon. And I don't know what it is about layering these two necklaces together - if you remember, I also did that here. They just go great together - and honestly, I didn't start layering necklaces until I started blogging. I just never thought to do it before! Also, I'm pretty sure my eyes are closed in that last picture, but that's one benefit to wearing sunglasses in photos! I do actually prefer taking photos sans sunnies, but I swear my eyes are so sensitive to light - I'd never have my eyes open without them!

P.S. I did a guest post over at Momma in Flop Flops - please check it out here and show Andrea some love!

  3. Love the mint & white & black combo. I also thought mint was going to be over just because it was so big the last couple of springs, but I'm glad it's sticking around and not too played out. I don't even have to check your back post link to see when you layered those necklaces because I know :) It's the one that made me hunt down that gold chain in store after store since it was OOS online! And I'm glad I did!

  4. I love mint!! I've been on the hunt for Mint Skinnies so the ones you listed from Express may just be the ones (since they are on sale)! Love the jewelry in your outfit too!

    1. Thank you so much! It's actually on my phone wallpaper! Well, because it's a picture of the inside of a Kate Spade store. Funny thing is, I didn't even realize this top was in it before I bought it!

  10. Definitely need to pin this outfit, loved how you styled the shoes, I have silver oxfords, and I struggle with how to wear them.

    Thanks a bunch :)

  17. I have to wear sunglasses during any hint of sunlight. can't leave the house without a pair. One good thing about this is that I have virtually no wrinkles around my eyes. The bad thing is I get raccoon eyes if I am out too long (I hate sunscreen on the face). I loved those shoes when you first got them and love them with this mint b/w combo. I have been eyeing the window pane trend but have yet to get something in this print.

    1. My husband is quite the sunglass connoisseur so he always gives me crap if I leave the house without them. Now I'm quite dependent on them, but I know they're good for you - for wrinkles and for protecting your vision!

  18. I love mint and I love seeing posts like this because I wouldn't think of pairing it with black and white but it looks fabulous together! My matchy matchy inner deamons stop me from thinking outside the box sometimes and I need some inspiration like this to help me think outside of the box!

    Thanks girl!
